We do not sell or rent your contact information to anyone. In these situations your information is provided to other 3rd party organizations:

Contacting us at email@example.com begins the process allowing you access to the information we have on file related specifically to your individual contact information. Contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org, in addition to further security checks, then allows you access only to your individual contact information. No other client contact information will be shared.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Kansas City Website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. Handwritten notes containing customer information is shredded as soon as it is entered into our online systems.
We retain Personal Information where we have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we’ll refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:
- Whether we have a legal or contractual need to retain the data.
- Whether the data is necessary to provide our Services.
- Whether our clients would reasonably expect that we would retain the data until they ask for us to remove it, or until their relationship with KC Web Specialists is terminated.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
